This was one of a few gateway albums for me to the wonderful world of jazz. CTI was cranking out a bunch of hitmakers during this time. But the music was interesting, engaging; not just commercial. This is a collector's item

I know there seems to be some confusion as to the actual release date for this classic LP- it was actually released in mid-December of 1972. In fact it was already on the jazz chart by the end of December. See Record Word 12/30/72...which has it at #22 on their jazz charts. It was reviewed in other trade publications in December 1972. It hit #1 in Blillboard in the spring of '73

Thick sleeve with printed inner, nice but albeit a japanese pressing, lacking definitive bass.

"Collectors of this all time classic by Deodato should note that the track "September 13" has been tampered with on many issues and reissues. If you grab the original 1st US pressing of the album, check out "September 13", time it with a stop watch and, most importantly, listen closely to the break. The track should clock in at around 5'56 and the break, nice funky drumming combined with congas, should last for about 30 seconds."

I don't know if this is true exactly, perhaps someone else can confirm. It seems most (all?) original vinyl copies are 5:24 and the quadraphonic release is the issue that includes the full conga solo by Ray Barretto.

Collectors of this all time classic by Deodato should note that the track "September 13" has been tampered with on many issues and reissues. If you grab the original 1st US pressing of the album, check out "September 13", time it with a stop watch and, most importantly, listen closely to the break. The track should clock in at around 5'56 and the break, nice funky drumming combined with congas, should last for about 30 seconds. Now, if you own any later issues or non-US reissues on vinyl, you will notice that the track "September 13" suddenly clocks in at around 5'24" (an amazing 32 second difference!) and you'll also notice that the break is basically edited down to, well, no break at all. Thankfully the Legacy reissue on CD (here) features the proper 5'56" version of "September 13" with that nice long drum break, but check what version of the album on vinyl you have, clock the track, listen to the break and see if your "September 13" has been edited down or not. Looking at the groove on your vinyl, it should be easy to 'see' the area of the break on the record and drop your needle right in front of it. In an instant you'll learn if you have the correct version with the long break, or the edited one. Just wanted to leave this here for those who are looking for "September 13" as a floorfiller for a jazzy/funky DJ-set played with vinyl. 'Cause that long break is most certainly the one thing that you can use to mix a transition to another cut during your set. At the same time, the true dancers in the club love that break. Look for it, check it and see what you have. That break, if you have it in the correct version, is a killer :)

Mine has identical label, but sleeve does not indicate origin.
